How is your weather today? I'm sorry, if you are suffering through the cold and snow, while I get to enjoy warm weather year round! It does rain a lot though, which my poor little Aspie boy hates...


He's so cute! He looks like he is actually driving!

My little girl!

That's my Hubby waving.

Valentine's Day... Bah! Humbug!

...... My Hubby's not home, the only Valentine I get today is from my daughter. Which was very cute and sweet! The pink hearts are stickers that were extra from the box of Valentines I bought for her school. I did however buy myself a box of Chocolates!! My favorites are the Russel Stover Chocolates! Especially the cream filled; vanilla, strawberry, orange and coconut, yum!

Cell Phones: I have even better Serv....

Hubby has been on the mainland training for several weeks now and rarely has cell service to call me. They keep moving to different locations so it varies from day to day. Yesterday morning he was able to call me and had told me they were "moving" again so hopefully he would still have service to call again later.

That evening he calls and the conversation went as follows:
-phone rings-
Me: Hi!!
Hubby: Hey! I have even better serv....

He was about to say "service", then the phone cut out and he was unable to call me back...

The Whining Forgetful Fur-Ball A.K.A. Ginger

Isn't she pretty? Pretty annoying...

Ginger is VERY demanding when she wants to be fed, she gets fed twice a day.
She is locked out of my bedroom at night and as soon as she hears or sees (I think she peeks under the door) me out of bed in the morning, she begins meowing/whining at the door for me to feed her.

In the late afternoon/evening, sometimes as early as 4:00 PM she begins to whine again to be fed. I will not feed her until at least 5:30. The funny part is, her food is upstairs in the laundry room at the end of the hall. I will be downstairs and every time I get anywhere near the stairs she meows like crazy and goes bolting up the stairs thinking I'm going to feed her. Same thing if I go upstairs she runs past me and bolts down the hallway towards the laundry room.

The annoying forgetful part.

2011 Weirdness

I saw this on the SocialMoms Facebook page and had to share it:

This year we will experience four unusual dates: 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11

I also  9/10/11 is cool!

Now take the last 2 digits of the year you were born plus the age you will be this year and it will equal 111. Kids born in the 2000s? Oh, that comes out to 11. Try it, its weird!

Also, just so you know, Friday the 13th occurs 1 time this year in May (the day before my daughter's 8th birthday). My cousin was born on a Friday the 13th, in October no less...

I Love living in Hawaii!!!


The kids may not have needed the floatie suites considering they were standing in only 3 inches of water... But better safe than sorry, the drop-off was just a few feet away.

Safety and Sanity Savers (Keep your kids Safe)


My kids are 7 and 3, so they are finally getting to the age where I dont have to "child proof" my house, as much...
These days its mostly my 3 year old who I worry about. He is much more mischievous, he likes to get into things, climb on things, take stuff apart....
Child proofing your home not only keeps your kids safe, but it can also help keep you sane!

Look how cute my boy is! He loves to climb... This bookshelf is in his room and its mounted to the wall so if he tries to climb it, it wont tip over on him (some of the "unseen" child proofing techniques are the most essential).

Gilligan's Island

With so many other Bloggers posting pictures of the cold and snow, I figured I should post some pictures from our trip to the sandbar last month!

This is where Gilligan's Island was filmed!

I don't know what this is, but it's a cool picture.
